Itinerary Planning Help

If you’re new to the whole campervan road trip holiday idea, this section offers advice on the best way to travel Australia and will help you prepare for your first ever campervan adventure.


Top Tips for Planning

1. Think about the type of experience you want to have and the length of time you want to be away – trying to pack too much in could create stress and disappointment

2. Ask around – check with friends and online for tips and recommendations about your itinerary thoughts

3. Maps and guide books are a handy research and planning tool – they’re a great reference and visually help you to get a picture of the place you’re visiting and the things to do

4. Don’t underestimate driving distances or the drive times – give yourself plenty of time to travel between locations

5. Be prepared to change your mind – one you’re on the road and you arrive in a place you just might be tempted to stay an extra night, prepare for flexibility.

What camper is right for you?

Whether you’re after a compact van for two, love all the creature comforts of home or prefer getting back to nature and camping under the stars, there is a campervan or 4WD to suit your needs.

Ask yourself before making a booking:

  • How many people are going to be traveling & need to sleep in the campervan? Vehicles range in size and usually cover 2, 4 and 6 berth occupancy options.
  • Do you need a toilet & shower? If you want to be a bit more independent and ‘freedom’ camp outside of holiday parks & campgrounds you will need a self-contained vehicle – one that contains a toilet/shower!
  • Are you travelling with kids – what requirements will you need for child seats and safety?
  • Do you need all the comforts & luxuries of home like a flat screen LCD and DVD or just something cute and compact with some mod-cons? Rates of vehicles can vary depending on size, brand, features and benefits so have a clear idea about what you want in your vehicle

With this trusty check list you will be better prepared when needing to plan your own campervan holiday experience.
